    Hi all

    I seem to have a problem with my audio devices during games! I started using the on board soundcard (mini jack to phono) into my mixer but this made clicking noises when too much sound was going on. After upgrading to an M-Audio Audiophile USB soundcard I still get the same problem!!

    Can anyone suggest why this might be? Could it be to do with my graphics card or is this a totally separate issue? it is really beginning to bug me now and was considering getting a new graphics card (ATI Radeon 1950 PRO) but i may not bother if I can't sort out these audible clicks (n)

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance

    Try narrowing the possibilities down. Plug headphones straight into the audio jack, and see if you still have problems. If you do, then you know it's definitely the computer. Also, make sure your speaker settings are correct. There's probably an icon in your system tray for M-Audio tools or something, or if not, then check in Start-> Control Panel for M-Audio, or at least Sounds. Find the speaker settings, and make sure it's the same as what you actually have installed.

    Which games specifically?

    Test it with headphones directly to the line out first, just to rule out everything else.

    As for which setting, I'm not really sure how you would do it with a mixer and amp involved...I guess it depends on the inputs that they can take. If they can only take a stereo input (left and right), then set it to 2 speakers.

    thanks mate,

    seem to have sorted it now (i hope) by turning off AVG from running in the background.

    Hopefully it will be ok now :)

    I don't think it would be related to the graphics card, unless it only happened once you tried a different card or something.

    Did it always make these noises? Or did it only happen when you tried plugging it in to the mixer?

    You did install any updated audio drivers/software for the new sound card right?

    Wonder if you need to disable onboard audio...... hmm :confused:
